September Ender

You know when a weekend is going to be really good when you worked so hard during the weekday. Why? Because you will savor all of your hardwork by enjoying the fruits of your labor (*wink!). That is exactly what we did tonight. We had a good dinner by the beach and enjoyed a jazz concert. We tried one of the good restos in the beachfront. The food was great and the ambience was beautiful.

All Photos taken thru my iPhone.
Oh how I love the PhotoShake app.

Here's my seafood platter and yum-o crabcake. I tried my very best to resist the steak in the menu, I do not want to wear plus size party dresses during the holidays. Yes, still trying to shed off the last 10lbs and target date would be before Christmas! Enjoy your weekend!
Dinner by the beach, Happy Weekend!  

What a Grandiose Washington, D.C.

Before I check on these high school graduation gifts, let me share some photos taken on our most recent trip to Washington, D.C.

Despite the rainy and very challenging weather, our friend, N and Stripe were able to capture the best spots of Washington, D.C. through their DSLRs, one a Canon and one a Nikon. Without further ado, here are some of the photos they took during that fun and memorable trip. (no stealing pics please :-), peace!) All photos unedited.

Languages of Love

For the first time in many years, I am excited about Monday, specifically, tomorrow hee hee. I will have the best ME time of my life and would do nothing except enjoy it to the fullest, err, maybe after researching on carpet cleaners raleigh nc. Anyway, I plan on starting to read a book, the 5 Languages of Love especially after this assessment's result surprised Stripe and me. I want to retake the test but that would not be effective anymore as I could think of the proper answers that would lead to my desired results. You can take the test here.

Cheers to another week full of blessings to all of us, have a good one friends!

Today.

We attended mini-Stripe's school's open house today.
It was so overwhelming knowing that it is going to be a challenging year as he is now a first grader. Sadly, A is not in his class anymore but I know that they will still be together every weekend doing sports and playdates. It will be a whole new experience to mini-S because there is only 1 boy in his class that used to be his classmate in Kindergarten, fortunately, this boy is one of his best pals. Then as we were driving home, I felt a chilly breeze brushed away my hair. There is no denying Autumn is almost here and I ain't ready for the colder seasons...yet! This reminds me to buy isuzu custom floor mats to help us prepare for the occassional snow. And just as much as I want for Summer to stay longer, I can only hold on to this picture of lovely sunflowers against the rays of sun.

Hope you'd all be warm despite the coming colder seasons!
Have a Sunshiney ber months y'all!
SUNFLOWERS. 
